Braves president Mike Plant was on a Liberty Media stream to investors. He told them the Braves are set up to win now and that "they're going for it." He added the plan is to compliment the core youth

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Atlanta Sports Fan.

And I want Jeff Bezos to give me half his checking account.

Soroka, Fried, Hamels, and Folty is a solid rotation. I assume Newcomb will be the #5 but I have no confidence in him for that to stick.

This also means there isn't a chance in **** Donaldson returns.

I wouldnt say that. The Braves have indicated they're going for it now and will spend. They've spent a ton already.

From what I've heard they're willing to spend in the $140-150 million range for payroll and this deal would put them right around $135 million. With what Donaldson is going to command I don't see how they're going to squeak him in there unless the reports are being conservative on the budget.

Still plenty of room to bolster the bench though, which is pretty meh as things stand.

I think this is when we'll see the prospects cashed in. I think we'll shift Markakis to platoon/bench and acquire an OF. If no Donaldson then that's a trade too.

???? 1-3 year deals tops. All top pitching prospects in the upper minors. AA is trying to compete but also bring along the young talent as long term options.

LMAO if they sign Bumgarner then they really are going all in along as they are filling 3B and OF with in house options. 

We desperately need another bat.

dont think they will. His market is reportedly trending towards 4-5 years $100M. I believe that's why we jumped on Hamels.
